Mafanikio Academy is designed to help participants harness and hone their innate talents and skills while developing new skills. The result is an individual who carries a powerful skillset that can help him or her navigate through life successfully at every turn. Young adults in particular aren’t always as prepared for self-sufficient living as they could be, and life skills training help to smooth over any rough edges that exist in a person’s skillset.
This is a comprehensive behaviour change approach that concentrates on the development of the skills needed for life such as communication, decision–making, thinking, managing emotions, assertiveness, self–esteem building, resisting peer pressure, relationship skills etc. It addresses the development of the whole individual—so that a person will have the skills to make use of all types of information. Life skills enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.
